December 19-THREE GIFTS MANGER-SMALL

Three gifts manger small would have to be the three Bostons.  They are the house mascots, the three musketeers, the three munchkins, etc.  Sassy, (Sassafras Teagood), (the black brindle), follows Hannah everywhere and acts much more dignified than the other two, even trying to pull the other two in with her mouth when they’re called or when she thinks they are being bad.  Yivi  (Yivi RodiJodi Rumgood),  in the middle (named by our granddaughter Kinsley, trying to say Olivia), is endearing in a cute/ugly way.  She loves to lick and stays thin because she simply cannot hold her tail end still for wagging when she is excited, which is any time she is not sleepy.  She likes to wind down by licking something, anything.   Buck (Starbuck Sirius Brewgood), is a very sweet little guy who is nuts about his toys and convinced that any company that comes here must be coming to see him.  They are great entertainers, snugglers and comforters!

Buck will bring a toy to the bed and nap beside it.

Yivi will occasionally try to wrestle a toy from Buck’s mouth.  If she wins it, she delights in spending a good part of her day just walking around with it in her mouth flaunting her prize in front of Buck, though she really doesn’t care about playing too much.  She just loves making him jealous, but unfortunately, if her prizes are small enough she often swallows them.  We find them later (yuk) and wonder how she has survived so far.

A dog’s life has got to include much thought about the favorite napping spots.  Theirs are sunny spots and laps.

Yivi has her own special style of beauty and often her tongue is hanging out.  Guess it just doesn’t fit well in her mouth.

Buck will tolerate just about anything for attention.  Here he  is willing to be a baby for Sylvia.

Sassy is usually rather independent of the other two and she is not sure she wants Buck napping with her.  She does occasionally join them for their own little “bath” time.

We are thankful for our pets and take much pleasure in them.  I believe we can learn much about trust from them.  They are so willing, by necessity to trust us, quite willing to overlook our errors and learn a certain amount of obedience, too.

Job 12:7-10
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or ask the birds of the air, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea tell you. Every one of these knows that the hand of the Lord has done this. The life of every creature and the breath of all people are in God’s hand.” (NCV)
